A Photo/Scrap Store Changes Course
Offering digital services rather than scrapbook

(Note: The following was emailed to customers of Roby's
Photo Shop and Scrapbook store in Damascus, Maryland.)
Roby’s Photo Shop and Scrapbook Store is Making a Change!!!
As many of you know, we’ve been in business since 1983. First
as a video rental enterprise, then a video store and one hour photo
and for the past 8 years, as a photo lab and scrapbook center. The
ability to evolve and our relationships with our customer has been
the secret of our success and this is exactly what we are doing now!
We will continue offering specialized photo services to
scrapbookers such as: scanning, resizing, color correcting/restoring
old pictures, printing from slides, telescopes and old and odd sized
negatives, scanning and reprinting scrapbooks, etc.
We will also begin aggressively growing our digital scrapbooking
and printing business. We plan to work with others to offer digital
scrapbooking classes, lap top crops – printing pages as they are
completed in our store, as well as being a complete photo lab and
digital scrapbook vendor at crops throughout the year.
Because of this new approach, we will be selling all our
traditional scrapbooking products, beginning IMMEDIATELY such as
paper, stickers and embellishments for 40% off.
We hope to complete the sale of these items as soon as possible
so please stop in soon and keep an eye on your email for updates and
Our goal is to have our photo lab, digital scrapbook and custom
framing services all running from our current location some time in
We are very excited about the future and hope to see you soon!
With great appreciation,
Ron and Charlotte Roby
